Wilson Named Nominee for Lowe's Senior CLASS Award
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia senior right-handed pitcher Tyler Wilson (Midlothian, Va.) has been named one of 30 baseball nominees for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award, presented to student-athletes who excel on and off the field. Wilson also is the lone nominee from an ACC school.
To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence – community, classroom, character and competition.
An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School®, the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.
Wilson is 18-7 with a 3.16 ERA in 73 career appearances. He ranks fifth in career appearances at Virginia and is one win shy of reaching the top 10 in that category at UVa. A biology major, he is plans to enter medical school and become an orthopedic surgeon once his playing career has concluded.
The listed will be trimmed to 10 finalists in April. Lowe’s, an official Corporate Partner of the NCAA, will announce the winner June 24 at the NCAA College World Series in Omaha.
